      [Cambridge] Yet Another Bloody Acronym. Whenever some program is being
      named, someone invariably suggests that it be given a name that is
      acronymic. The response from those with a trace of originality is to remark
      ironically that the proposed name would then be ?YABA-compatible?. Also
      used in response to questions like ?What is WYSIWYG?? See also TLA.
